about what he and the city have been through. tom menino has been mayor for 20 years, longer than any other. you may have seen him in a wheelchair or using a walker throughout this ordeal. that's because on the saturday before marathon monday, he'd had surgery on a broken ankle. he was in the hospital on his favorite day, patriots day, when that bomb went off. he normally would have been right there at the finish line reviewing stand. against his doctors' wishes, he signed himself out of the hospital because, as he said, he had a city to run. what did your doctor think of your decision to check yourself out of the hospital? >> oh, they didn't like it at all. they were saying, you can't do this, you can't. i said, well, i can do it, watch me. >> what about pain meds? how did you keep your head clear? because when you're in the hospital -- >> i don't take pain meds. i don't take them. >> three days after surgery. >> yeah. i don't take pain meds. >> you were clear-headed. >> all i take is tylenol. >> wow. >> i don't take any of that stuff. i have had bad reactions. i will not take any pa
of boston because tom menino is not very good -- he's not the greatest orator, but, you know, he's one of us. this is what we like. you know, we don't want somebody wrapped up in baloney sentences, everything. tom menino is a mayor who helps neighborhoods. that's why he keeps getting elected, although he's going out now. god bless him. he's served 20 years for us. but i think that's -- i'm sure people all over the world are watching, saying, that's the mayor of boston? he doesn't sound like much of an orator. he's not. he's lousy at it. he admits it. he makes fun of himself for that. the reality is tom menino knows that neighborhood and he's our mayor. and the richard family, they're our people and they will be taken care of. but how do they recover from that? how do they ever have a good day after what happened to martin, what happened to janeny, the little sister who lost her leg? how does little henry recover from this seeing what happened to his siblings? how does poor bill richard recover from this? the one good thing, friends of mine who are very friendly with the richards say denise i

. thanks. i mentioned boston mayor tom menino earlier. you perhaps heard governor patrick say that he started his day by visiting the boston mayor in his hospital room. well, there turned out to be no keeping mayor menino down. even though he was in the hospital being treated for a broken leg, even though he has had so many health challenges just since this past winter, including diagnosis of diabetes, and he had some heart trouble, he has decided not to run for re-election, he is, however, the longest-serving mayor in the modern history of boston. he is the number-one booster of that city in this event. he apparently will bring this to you live when this happens, heading toward the microphones to give his own press briefing. and generally just say to the people of boston, "we'll get through this." dean walker, who has been really helpful to us, is part of the universal sports -- another arm of this company -- universal sports network coverage, up there in a production trailer not far from the finish line. if you'd been watching our live coverage, dean heard the first concussion and s

"we got him." and brian, when you say that they are bringing him in under federal terrorism charges, what is the distinction you're making there? >> reporter: as i understand it, the plan was to charge him with federal terrorism charges as opposed to state murder charges. now, one distinction is that in massachusetts, there is no death penalty. under federal terrorism charges, there could be. but that was my understanding that this was a case, being handled by the fbi, by the federal gott, and the jurisdiction would be with the u.s. attorney here in massachusetts. >> i want to bring back in evan goodman, who has been such a great reporter, citizen reporter for us tonight. evan, you are right there, close to the scene and you heard a cheer go up? >> hi, diane, yes. so, basically, a couple of us were outside and all of a sudden we heard a pretty sizable cheer down the road, so close, and we walked out to the front and we intercepted a police officer and, you know, we asked if he was alive or not an

on the situation as he pointed out in his remarks, he did make phone calls to mayor tom menino, i have been here all afternoon. i can tell you moments after those blasts went off in boston, pennsylvania avenue outside of the white house was shut down, closed to foot traffic. it is normally closed to cars, to vehicles. but today it was closed to foot traffic. it was done out of an abundance of caution. that is something that is sort of par for the course when there has been a breach of security in another state. so that is something that we would expect, but i can tell you that at this hour pennsylvania avenue is still closed down to foot traffic outside of the white house. and, again, president obama continues to monitor this situation. we expect him to receive briefs throughout the evening. >> kristin walker, thank you very much. it's good to have that perspective. i want to bring in now from boylston street in boston, nbc's kerry sanders who's out there in the cold. i understand police are still on the scene right now. what can you tell us about what things look like right there now. >> it is

. boston mayor tom menino has wrapped up the entire boston bombing case into one sound bite in abc's "this week." >> all the information i have is they acted alone, these two individuals, the brothers. the older brother is dead now. we have a second one at beth israel hospital in very serious condition. we don't know if we'll ever be able to question the individual. >> mike: don't know if that sounds familiar, but seems like after every major crime, whether it's the kennedy assassination, the assassination of martin luther king jr., we always are pretty quick to come out and say that it was the lone nut, in this case it's a couple of them. now the truth is we don't know if they were the only ones involved. not at this point. there were some news reports that said, oh, they were a part of a sleeper cell of some 12 terrorists, but that, too, is unconfirmed. at this stage of the investigation, nobody really can say definitivively whether these were the only two people involved or whether they were part of a larger conspiracy. we always want to rush to the conclusion and somehow make ourselves

and justice. in particular, mayor tom menino. this mayor came from the hospital to be involved in the aftermath and suspect search. seeing him on television in a wheelchair gave everyone a great feeling of pride and couldn't help but notice how deeply he cares for the city he has so ably overseen for many years. he embodies the grit and toughness that boston is known for. he embodies boston's strong. governor patrick was a true leader during a time of cry sills. he helped oversee the -- crisis. he helped oversee the coordination of so many agencies, to ensure optimal collaboration. made sure the public was up to date and aware of the situation as it developed. as we all watched moment to moment from our homes or wherever we might be. he stood with a determined, strong composure that trickled down throughout the state public safety agencies. and we will always appreciate president barack obama's deep involvement since the start. his words during the service at the cathedral of the holy cross were a touching example of our nation's unwavering resolve. as much as we are boston str
's no bigger booster of the city of boston than tom menino. now to have this. we have every federal agent in the region heading to boston, massachusetts. we're just going to keep putting these pictures on the air as they come in. you see all the yellow vests of first responders. remember how many were already there. pete williams, our justice correspondent, pete, sadly, as i keep saying, we have way too much expertise in explosives and terrorism investigation over these past ten years. let us hope that we can put that to good use very quickly here. >> reporter: i think it's already turning out to be that way, brian. first of all, the initial analysis that there were two devices that went off and two more that they quickly found. now, what they're going to be doing now, of course, is proceeding on several tracks. there'll be a team of people who will go in there and try to pick up every little piece that they can of these devices. we believe for sure they were devices that went off. we don't know how much they're going to be able to get out of the other two. it appears that they very quick
to boston mayor tom menino as well as massachusetts governor deval patrick to extend his thoughts with that community right now and says the administration will stand by them, offer them whatever assistance they need as they deal with this situation. we do have a statement from the white house which i can read to you, tamron. it was released a short time ago. it says "the president has been notified of the incident in boston. his administration is in contact with state and local authorities. he directed his administration to provide whatever assistance is necessary in the investigation and response." i can tell you the vice president has also been made aware of this situation. he extended his thoughts and prayers to those in boston right now who are dealing with what is such an incredibly difficult situation. as is customary in these types of incidents, tamron, pennsylvania avenue outside of the white house has been shut down to foot traffic. that is really out of an abundance of caution, of course, a security measure to make sure just in case that the white house is being protect
:00 when he was first notified. i can also tell you that he has placed calls to the boston mayor, tom menino, as well as the governor of massachusetts deval patrick to extend his thoughts but also to say the administration will be putting its full weight and resources behind the response to this crisis in boston. now, out of an abundance of caution, the secret service has closed off pennsylvania avenue to foot traffic. that is the road outside of the white house, chris. there's never any vehicles that travels along pennsylvania avenue outside of the white house, but as of right now it's been closed to foot traffic as well. i want to emphasize that that is out of an abundance of caution. that is something that normally happens in this type of situation. so president obama continuing to stay up to date on the developments and the investigation and, again, just wrapping up a phone call with fbi director robert muller and dhs secretary janet napolitano. >> who has the lead? have we been able to figure out in terms of bureaucracy and our response? is it fbi clearly now? >> we haven't gotte
-- >> and still. >> it happens. >> there was a remarkable moment with mayor tom menino who has been serving as boston mayor for many years. he announced he will not seek re-election, he was in the hospital, came back from the hospital to address reporters today. and the mayor has really looms large in the city of boston because of the duration and the fame of his tenure there. >> for sure. i mean, he was, he's been mayor for 20 years and was mayor on 9/11 when two of the planes left boston logan airport. so security here has been taken uber seriously ever since. in many ways, this was the worst place to try to do something like this, police had swept that area, there were emergency responders who did work taking care of people immediately, highly trained followings there, dozens, if not hundreds of police in those two blocks and race officials, police were drawing their pistol within seconds of the explosion. so the presence was there. i'm sure much will be examined. and how much they spent on security in the past, but it's, you know, from all accounts, at least at first, they did what they
, he did make phone calls to mayor tom menino as well as governor deval patrick. i have been here really all afternoon. i can tell you moments after those blasts went off in boston, pennsylvania avenue outside of the white house was shutdown. closed to foot traffic. it is normally closed to cars, to vehicles. but today it was closed to foot traffic done out of an abundance of caution. we should make that very clear. that is something that is sort of par for the course when there has been a breach of security in another state. that is something we would expect. i can tell you, rachel, at this hour, pennsylvania avenue is still closed down to foot traffic outside of the white house. and, again, president obama continues to monitor this situation. we expect him to receive briefs throughout the evening. rachel? >> kristen welker, thank you very much. nbc news white house correspondent. great to have that perspective. i want to bring in now from boylston street in boston, nbc's carey saunders who's out there in the cold. i understand police are still on the scene right now. what can yo
of this at about 3:00 this afternoon. he reached out to boston mayor tom menino not only to extend his thoughts and prayers but to make it very clear that the federal government will put its full resources behind figuring out who did this and also helping the community of boston heal. he's been briefed throughout the day by robert muller, the director of the fbi as well as dhs secretary, janet napolitano. he will continue to get updates throughout the evening. but again, there's not a whole lot of information in terms of who actually carried out this attack. some frustration here this evening because they don't know the if this was carried out by someone here on u.s. soil or someone abroad. so, that is really the key question they are looking into. again, president obama is continuing to monitor the situation into the evening. lawrence? >> kristen welker, thank you. joining me now with the latest on that investigation, nbc news justice correspondent, pete williams. >> lawrence, good evening. investigators know for certain that this attack involved two bombs. but what they don't know the is whet

will overcome. >> that from tom menino. for two decades, he checked himself out of the hospital with a broken leg to take care of the city. it was supposed to be the most joyful day of the year in boston. patriots day. instead, as the cover of the boston herald characterized it today, terror at the finish line. shelly cohen lives in the neighborhood where the blast happened. in a moving editorial today called monday, the day boston lost its innocence. thanks so much for being with us. i wanted to start with a quote that struck me from your piece. you said in the years post 9/11, we've grown contemptuous of the host of silly rule and regulations design to give the appearance of keeping us safe. when we know in our hearts that there is no such thing as safe anymore. by all accounts, all the rules and protocol were followed yesterday. do you feel more contemptuous than ever of those rules or do you feel like we need to pay more attention to them now? >> well, i think we will be in the usual vicious cycle. we will put up with them again. we will have our bags searched when we're going into the su
the president say he spoke to mayor tom menino. that he has spoken to governor patrick and he told them, he would be putting the full weight and resources of the federal government behind figuring out who exactly is responsible for this. so still a very somber day here at the white house, tamron. as in past tragedies, the president has visited communities who are suffering. i would not be surprised if we saw president obama take a trip to boston in the coming days. >> thank you very much of before we go to break, i want to reiterate is breaking news from pete williams, that it fathers bombs were explosives made of pressure cookers placed at the scene. likely in backpacks. the explosive charge, according to the information, could propel shrapnel and fragments of that pressure cooker itself at speeds of 3,300 feet per second. that's more than three times the speed of a .9 millimeter round fired from a gun. so we're getting more information on the actual material used to create that explosives and how they may have gone undetected by so many people if they were hidden in, as believed right now
and mayor tom menino and watertowne chief edward devoe briefed e media a short time ago. the suspect has not been apprehended yet. here's an excerpt. >> we do not have an apprehension of our suspect this afternoon, but we will have one. we're committed to that. i want the neighborhood here in watertown to know that we went through about 20 streets here door to door with our tactical teams. we knocked on doors to ensure that everyone was safe in their homes and that they saw the police on their streets. we did limited searches of those homes to render them safe. we've also followed a number of leads this afternoon that have taken us in various places in eastern massachusetts and none of those leads have been fruitful to this point. there's much less to be done including ballistics and forensic work that will be concluded in boston in the next fey we also have a scene up here -- a forensics scene where we had some exploded and unexploded ordnance there that were made safe and removed during the course of the afternoon. that is still on going but should be completed shortly. we are going dr
, celebrating now and with a huge sense of relief. got a great tweet here. this is from the mayor of boston, tom menino, shaking hands with governor deval patrick. the message very simple, it says teamwork. it really has been remarkable teamwork down there from all the authorities involved. i will go to juliette kayyem, cnn contributor, former u.s. assistant secretary for homeland security. juliette, this has been a stunning victory for the authorities, hasn't it? >> i don't think anyone is going to do anything but be happy for a few hours. utter exhaustion by the first responders, given that this started on monday. and it was textbook in so many odd ways given how big this was, that the authorities put together a bunch of pieces, got some pictures, went public with the pictures and then we've had a wild 23 hours and one suspect is dead and one is in custody. so while it was unbelievably large, very tense, very scary for people who live here, that part of it is over. >> bob baer, with all your experience working with the cia, has this been a textbook operation by the authorities here? it seems l
